October 25 will be the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt, the centerpiece of Shakespeare's Henry V. I'm very excited. You might recall that last year I put together this supercut of the Crispin's Day speech, featuring all the filmed Henry Vs I could find.
I'd like to do something similar this year, but featuring YOU, my faithful readers. So, if you'd like to participate in the Good Tickle Brain 600th anniversary commemoration of the Battle of Agincourt, get in touch with me! Here's how it will go:
I will assign you a couple lines from the Crispin's Day speech. Sorry, you can't choose which ones, because then everyone would be doing the "band of brothers" bit and there would be no one to say "Bedford and Exeter, Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester". (Frankly, I love those lines, but I realize they're not exactly the glamorous quotable bit.)
Film yourself reciting those lines. This doesn't need to be a fancy production. If you've got a smartphone, you've got a video camera in your pocket. Just make sure the sound works, so I don't get a clip of you saying "thrrs drrr urrs crrrld thrrr frsst urrff Crrrsprrrn".
Send the video to me (goodticklebrain AT gmail DOT com). Also include how you would like to be credited: real name, pseudonym, Twitter/Tumblr handle, anonymous, whatever).
I will then put together all the videos I receive into a super SUPER Crispin's Day supercut.
Please send me your videos by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, so I have some time to put everything together!
Don't hold your manhood cheap whiles any speaks that recorded little bits of video with us upon St. Crispin's Daaaaaaay!
